Russian communications satellites were, for a time, stable but  out of direct command of their ground controllers after a communicatons cable had been severed during roadwork son 14 November.  The roadworks had been on the Shchyolkovsky Highway outside Moscow and cut the line to Roscosmos mission control centre at Korolyov near Moscow.   According to Russian media sources, the Russian Space agency, Roscosmos indicated that the cable has been repaired by the following day and communications restored.   Apart from one module being affected, the International Space Station was not cut off as the Russian Control Centre was able to communicate with the station by using US systems.
